Last July 17th was the 95th anniversary of the murder of the Romanov family. July 12th was the 400th anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty. The western media proclaimed it on every front page and was the lead story on TV news. We saw Obama shed a tear as he stated how the royal family was his family and how we should all follow their example of strength, faith and courage under persecution. News anchors throughout the west spoke sorrowfully as they echoed Christ's words, "Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake. Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven." I am being facetious of course. The Red press would never mention what happened to the Romanovs and how successful Russia has grown especially in the light of the recent failures in the US.
The Romanovs and other martyrs of the 20th century go quietly unnoticed overseas but not in Russia where their sufferings enkindled their nation's faith. Obama and his imps prefer to ignite racial warfare in their land so to cover up his wars and economic woes. How many white people have been murdered that have gone unreported? I am afraid the list of murdered innocent people will continue to grow. Where is the conservative Black voice? It is there but ignored. Allen West's conservative voice goes unheard by those in power. Alan Keyes, who ran for Senator of Illinois against Obama, is laughed at by most blacks who call themselves Christians. The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, pro life activist Dr. Alveda C. King, is asking why the race baiting. Also, how many more babies will be legally killed under Obama's reign of terror? Christianity is under siege in America and the world. Christians murdered in North Africa. Bishops held hostage in Syria. Christians held hostage in America. Solzhenitsyn once said, "The Soviet Union was the Russian people held hostage by the Communists". Now they are free of the "Beast" and its atheistic government.
The Christian men and women of Russia prayed, suffered and died for today's free and united Russia. Holy Mother Russia was attacked by Hell itself yet it endured and rebuilt Christ's Church. Over 58 Million were killed in Communist Russia but the Faith survived. It is one of the greatest miracles in world history. However, the western media chooses to ignore or defame Christianity's success in Russia They prefer to focus their attention on Putin accusing him of being an evil dictator while they themselves have rejected the Holy Spirit and proudly wear the seal of the Antichrist. They laugh but God is not mocked. Christ is Victorious in Russia. The Russian Civil War did not end in the 1920's. It was won after Putin was elected. He helped restore the Church. However, it is not about Putin. IT IS ABOUT CHRIST AND HIS CHURCH.
This year is the 1,025th anniversary of the Baptism of Russia. It is a Christian nation that overcame a turbulent and horrific past. Christians in Russia have survived Hell's fury from communism. In 1931, December 5, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow was vandalized and destroyed by the Soviets. A sign of what was to come. As the building fell, so many innocent millions were murdered, swept away. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were unleashed. The Red terror continued and slave labor camps were established called "gulags". The Ukraine was one giant concentration camp, "Holodomor". The sufferings and deaths of these Russian Christian martyrs will bear fruit just as the blood of the early Christian martyrs converted Rome. The blood that once soaked the land was the seed for Russia's new destiny. The Cathedral of Christ the Savior has been rebuilt. The evil that spread from Russia in 1917 to the West will be destroyed by Russia's renewed faith that will heal the world.
It is the beginning of the "Era of Peace" that was promised in 1917 to 3 children in Fatima, Portugal. These children were told to pray for Russia and the conversion of sinners in the world. One of them a Catholic nun, Sister Lucia, said the needed consecration of Russia did take place by the Russian Orthodox Bishops in 1984. She was promised that she would live to see the beginning of this peace and she did. She died at 97 years of age on February 14, 2005. One month later Pope John Paul II died. He was the pope who gave back to Russia the original icon of Our Lady of Kazan. During the Bolshevik revolution the icon was in danger of being destroyed and was rescued an art dealer. The icon made its way to different countries and was eventually sent to Fatima, Portugal where a chapel was built for it. There it remained safe until the appropriate time. In August 2004, a special delegation was sent to Moscow from the Pope and Patriarch Alexi II gratefully received the icon. It was a sign that the Faith was restored in Russia.
The following is an excerpt from the vision of St. John, Wonderworker of Kronstadt who foresaw in 1901 the suffering Russia was about to endure: "He suddenly stopped and pointed to the east with his hand. I saw a large gathering of people with joyous faces carrying crosses and candles in their hands. In their midst stood a large altar as white as snow. On the altar was the cross and the Holy Gospel and over the altar was the vosduch with golden imperial crown on which was written in golden letter, 'For the short term.' Patriarchs, bishops, priests, monks, nuns, and laymen stood around the altar. They were all singing, 'Glory to God in the highest and peace on Earth' Out of great joy I made the sign of the cross and praised God.
Suddenly the starets waved his cross upwards three times, and I saw mountain of corpses covered in human blood and above them Angels were flying. They were taking the souls of those murdered for the Word of God to heaven while they sang, Alleluia!' I observed all this and cried loudly. The starets took me by the hand and forbade me to cry. 'What is pleasing to God is that Our Lord Jesus Christ suffered and shed His precious blood for us. Such ones will become martyrs who do not accept the seal of the antichrist, and all who shed their blood will receive heavenly crowns."
The west has lied about the martyred Romanovs in movies and in books. I doubt a single person in any US public school today knows the truth about them. Regarding Tsar Nicholas II, Saint John of Shanghai said in 1934, "It is known for certain that he always began and ended his day with prayer. On great church feasts he always received Communion, sometimes mixing with the faithful who were approaching the Great Mystery, as he did at the uncovering of St. Seraphim's relics. He was an example of chasteness and the head of an exemplary Orthodox family, bringing up his children in readiness to serve the Russian people and carefully preparing them for the toil and labor to come."
I once told an American, "Remember, communists hate religious people." Margaret from the US told me, "You are so right, Xavier. I once read an excellent explanation for this. The overriding goal of Communism is a central government with total control over the populace. For this to be achieved, the people MUST accept the STATE as the ultimate power over their lives. Since religious people believe that GOD is the ultimate authority - the grantor of rights and freedoms - and refuse to recognize a government of men having this kind of power, for Communism to succeed, religion must be stamped out, destroyed, invalidated, etc."
The communists have come to power in America and the "Beast" torments her like thousands of red ants bringing down a horse, bit by bit. A slow death. A very slow and cruel agony. Deaths will increase and persecutions as well. This message is for Christians in America: please follow the example of the Romanovs, their strength, faith and courage under persecution. They were a religious family faithful to God and each other. Remember what Christ told us, ""Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake. Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven."
